Mr. Speaker, the Conservative government is taking unacceptable risks with food safety.
The union representing meat inspectors has sounded the alarm and is speaking out about a serious shortage of inspectors in Quebec. Quebeckers want the products on their plate to be of high quality. However, the government insists on off-loading its food inspection responsibilities onto the companies so that they can regulate themselves.
Why are the Conservatives giving up on food safety for Canadians?
